Bendix has released PROTRANS™HD, its latest development in high performance brake pads for commercial vehicles.
Bendix PROTRANS™HD Brake Pads are designed and engineered to combat the extreme pressures that heavy duty vehicles, such as Cement Agitators, Refuse Compactors, Major Rigs and City Route Buses, are exposed to on a daily basis and are specially engineered to meet Australia’s demanding conditions.
The development of the PROTRANS™HD revolves around a special advanced heavy duty formulation designed to cope with the high temperatures related to constant braking and GMV loading which requires a higher performance brake pad. This in turn addresses a major issue in fleets of multipurpose pad’s wear rate.
Employing the highest levels of technology designed to meet the world’s stringent safety and compliance regulations, premium quality friction materials are essential with electronics controlling many aspects of the modern heavy vehicle such as engine, transmission and brakes. The range meets ECE-R90 regulations (where homologated) and are FE rated (J661). The ECE Regulation 90 (ECE-R90) specifies the design, construction, performance requirements and test protocols to strict European regulation. ECE R90 calls for brake pads to be tested for braking capabilities, speed sensitivity, cold performance and may only deviate from the frictional characteristics of their original equipment counterparts by nomore that 15 per cent.
The comprehensive new PROTRANS™HD range from Bendix covers the most popular heavy commercial vehicle applications and is now available from leading Bendix stockists offering OE quality, low pad wear and come with hardware included in the pack ready to fit.
